Natural language processing models in chemistry have emerged as one of the most effective approaches for capturing human knowledge and modelling creativity in organic chemistry. Its application in machine learning tasks demonstrated high quality and ease of use in problems such as predicting chemical reactions [1-2], retrosynthetic routes , digitizing chemical literature , predicting detailed experimental procedures , designing new fingerprints  and yield predictions . In this presentation, I will discuss the impact of language models in chemistry by describing first the implementation of the first cloud-based AI-driven autonomous laboratory .
Finally, I will focus on the most recent applications of language models to address the problem of characterizing unknown enzymes, the development of human-in-the-loop schemes for retrosynthetic strategies or promoting sustainability and green chemistry strategies with ad-hoc AI models.

According to the last information received from ICIQ’s safety department about the measures to prevent and contain COVID-19 at ICIQ, a total of 70 people is now the maximum capacity allowed in the Auditorium, so the conference will be finally held in the Auditorium as well as through ZOOM platform too.
If you are interested in attending in the Auditorium, please, fill in this registration form to be sure that we do not exceed the maximum capacity. (It will be assigned on a first-come/first served basis). We will confirm your acceptance through an e-mail 24h before the event.
